Yes, we are now home, so the title, JOHNANDKATHYINGUYANA, is not true of us presently. We are waiting on the Lord for the future ministry the Lord has for us.
The last week in Guyana was the frosting on the cake--John preached 5 Crusade services, baptized a man and had a young lady ask to be restored to fellowship! Can it get any better than that? It was exciting to say the least. Ellen and Katie posted some pictures of the Crusade on their blog. They sang a number of times and helped others to sing as well. They were a real blessing to the people, both by their singing as well as having helped them to sing. It was fund to learn new songs and to have lots of nice special music. They will be missed when they leave the 19th of May.
Our trip home was uneventful except going through security in Guyana. Our suitcases were overweight according to the scales we tried to weigh them on, so John said lighten them. So I found several heavy things and switched them to the carry-ons. That was a big mistake when it came to the silverware and paring knives I wanted to take home...... We barely made it on the plane in time for lift off. They took the knives of course and the table knives and forks. I had taken 4 place settings so we would have all matching silverware. Then when we went out to board the plane, it was my 2 checked bags they wanted to examine. John is telling me to get on the plane and security says they want to examine these bag. Needless to say, I was confused but John won and the security folks must have agreed on it because the suitcases arrived with us. PTL!
We flew into Miami and was to meet Brother Almond but without a cell phone and not knowing his cell number, it was difficult. I spent $3.10 trying to get his son's home number without success and then decided to page him, when I heard him having us paged so we did get together. However, his driver (because Brother Almond's car had died the day before) was parked ahead of where we were waiting, so in trying to circle around to us, his GPS told him to go the wrong way 3 times......We finally all got together and loaded and on our way. We went to Mitchell and Alana's for dinner and to discuss our future in Guyana. My sister, Sandy, met us there and we spent 2 days with her and her husband before returning to Anniston and our impatient children.
Our getting together in Atlanta with Heidi, our daughter, went well and in no time we were on the road headed home. We got in about 7:30 p.m. Saturday evening, May 2.
Everyone was glad to see us and, of course, vice versa. We have our '96 Dodge Ram Laramie double cab pickup on the road and are looking forward to visiting folks who want to hear about Guyana. Let us know if you are interested.
